Nice ES to NA & West Indies + PJ5A in the log on 6M !

Hi all, a nice opening to USA/VE & West Indies tonight !
It all started earlier in the afternoon with a strong signal on the Magic band from D44TS Cape Verde in HK77 (new grid)... then it was to VE signals to grew up.
I decided to send some CQ and worked some USA & VE stations for some new gridsquares...
Later it was finally PJ5A Saba & Sint Eustatius to be in the log with a fantastic signal during all the evening here (2 hours long !) for my DXCC #90 on 6M !
I also worked some Carribeans and SA... 

 A very nice evening on 6 !

E-Sporadic June 16th, 2015

The journey started with a very early weak opening to NA... Everybody thought to a nice EU to NA propagation in the afternoon but it was only for EA, CT and I again...
By the way, an EU to EU very strong sporadic came here !
An incredible session for me with 20dB over reports ! I've even been called by HB9 stations with 599 reports for an ATNO on 6M (#88) : I NEVER heard any station from Switzerland before ! A total of 4 new squares + 1 new DXCC... perfect ! ^^
I could log 78 stations in 1h30 before going QRT.
